Sports Bra Mistakes
Here are the most common mistakes people make when buying a sports bra! Let’s see together how to avoid them!
Choosing the ideal bra is never easy, let alone choosing a sporty one, looking for the right balance between support, comfort and practicality! If you don’t know how to choose a sports bra, let’s see how to proceed together crop top sports bra.
When we exercise, our breasts “bounce” in any direction, causing stretching of the surrounding tissues: without good support, the damage could become permanent! What should we take into account then, before throwing ourselves into the shopping dedicated to this garment? What mistakes should be avoided?
1) CHOOSE NON-ADJUSTABLE SPORTS BRA
All sports bras should have adjustable parts (as is the case with normal bras). After some time from the first use, your bra will surely start to lose some elasticity, and the fact that it can be adjusted makes it usable for a longer period, but not only!
If your goal, while exercising, is to lose weight, or gain muscle mass, you cannot do without an adjustable sports bra (it is well known that one of the first parts where you lose volume is your breasts).
2) TAKE SPORTS BRA WITHOUT CONSIDERING THE TYPE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Depending on the type of physical activity you do, you may need more or less support: for example, if you go for a run every day, you will certainly need a very performing sports bra , with different types of support: in this case yours. ideal companions will be all those bras suitable for “high impact” sports.
On the contrary, if your activities have a minor impact you can easily opt for low impact bras: they generally look almost like tops even if the adjustable part on the back and a nice band to support the breast are never missing.
3) THE MOST SERIOUS ERROR: THE SIZE
Ok, ok we know: finding the right size is never an easy task but even here you must not be fooled by everything on the market. Avoid buying bras that show “small, medium or large” size as a label (unless you find them with adjustable straps, which is very rare).
Remember that breast support, during sports, is extremely important to avoid pain in the future: better invest some extra money than settle for the first one that happens, to the detriment of our health. To understand if you have taken the ideal size for you, don’t just wear the bra to see if it fits in the right way: also try to do a few hops to test if, indeed, it keeps everything in the right place.
